Tulachermet is the leading Russian producer and exporter of merchant pig iron, the largest enterprise of the IMH Group.
At present, production volume is over 2 million tons of pig iron per year.
Tulachermet produces more than 20 various Russian grades of pig iron for steel works and foundries, seven of which are steel-making pig iron grades, and the rest 13 are foundry pig iron grades.
Tulachermet produces nine pig iron grades for export markets, including steel-making pig iron for steel works and foundries, nodular and semi-nodular grades for manufacturers of malleable iron castings and six grades of foundry pig iron for foundries.
The main advantage of pig iron produced in Tula is its purity by the content of such impurities as manganese, phosphorus, titanium, chromium, copper, vanadium, sulfur, which is due to the use of high-purity raw materials from deposits of Kursk Magnetic Anomaly and coke coal produced by KOKS. The quality of raw materials combined with the production technology make it possible to produce pig iron with impurity content as low as Mn, Р up to 0.05%, S — 0.015%, Ti, Cr, Cu, V — up to 0.025%, and Al, Ni, Co, Sb, B, Te, As, Sn, Mo, Se, Zn, Bi in total — 0.03%.
More than 90% of products are exported, and main consumers are enterprises of USA, Eastern and Western Europe and Middle East.
The enterprise can modify the iron smelting production process more flexibly than most competitors. This allows to significantly increase the share of foundry and nodular pig iron, depending on consumers’ requirements.
Along with merchant pig iron, the plant produces and sells in the market granulated slag and slag crushed stone for production of various types of concrete and road building.
PJSC Tulachermet has implemented and certified the quality management system meeting the international standard ISO 9001: 2008.
